Islam Op-Ed: U.S. Domestic Issues Block Mideast Peace
During his current trip to the Mideast, President Bush said any peace treaty
between the Israelis and the Palestinians would require "painful political
concessions by both sides."
What he left unstated was the need for painful political concessions on the
domestic front in this nation if we are to achieve a real and just peace in
that troubled region. [Full op-ed]

PA: Muslim Officer Appeals for Right to Wear Hijab
Kimberlie Webb has been a Philadelphia police officer since 1995 and a
follower of the Islamic faith for just as long.
But since 2003, the 35th District officer has been embroiled in a legal
battle over her right to wear a khimar, a traditional head scarf worn by
Muslim women, while in uniform.
Webb, 46, filed discrimination claims against the city with the Equal
Employment Opportunity Commission in 2003 after the department suspended her
for wearing the headdress while on duty.

Tears Are a Mercy
When the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was questioned about weeping
following the death of his granddaughter, he said: "(Weeping) is the mercy
that God has placed in the hearts of His servants. And surely God bestows
mercy upon those who are merciful (to others)."
